Fluoride Debate in Parry Sound Community

September 23, 2015 | Posted in Dental | Be the first one to comment

Dr. Raimundo recently did and impromptu speech at a council meeting regarding Fluoride.

She discusses how removing Fluoride from local drinking water would affect different populations in the area.

Dr. Raimundo states that:

“In my practice I see a lot of people who are on assistance programs and it’s wonderful if we all have insurance programs that paid for us (to visit a dentist) every six months; we don’t have that here,” Raimundo said.  “We have a lot of people who rely on sign-up – which is for children and youth care – we have a lot of people on disability. These are the people I don’t want to have slip through the cracks. They are just as important to our community as a whole…if you’re going to take away the one, because of the right to choose what’s in your drinking water, you still have to provide those groups that need it, with a solution."
